to building bridges between the united states and the arab and muslim world, particularly libya. and i think this is going to sour a lot of americans about the future trajectory of the middle east, about the direction in which the arab spring is headed. and i think particularly this is tragic for syrians. syrians who are now under siege or around 20,000 syrians have been killed by the regime of assad and i think many syrians were hoping for an outside intervention or outside aid to provide some type of save zones. and i think the reality is that after the united states and nato had gone into libya it oust gadhafi, i think there will be far less appetite to want on do anything in syria. >> probably also raises huge questions about money from america that is going to fund some of these governments particularly in egypt where it's $1.5 billion plus another billion that was being put together in a package right now. how do you think that plays out in congress at this point? >> that's absolutely right. egypt is a country which has i think the second or third largest aid package from the united st
in the united states. some indexes they watch on a weekly basis have been lower recently and that will fuel a lot of talk about a bit of a slowdown. front-running the fed, guys, did you see what happened yesterday? i pointed out some of the biggest etfs in the high yield area. i'm talking about j&k had heavy volume and hitting new highs. why is that happening? a lot of people believe at the minimum the fed is going to extend forward guidance to keep interest rates low to at least 2015. all of that would be a big beneficiary to high-yield funds who are forcing people to go out on the yield curve. this is one simple way people are already anticipating exactly what the fmoc is going to be doing. back to you. >> terrific, bob. got to ask rick. looks like people sell bond, shift bonds to the dollar. rick is at cm group in chicago. >> thank you. i guess we should welcome europe to the same club the u.s. is in. lots of liquidity. maybe more liquidity coming. and a generally weak economy. welcome to the club. if you look at our charts, they pretty much reflect a lot of what central banking is doing
a barrel and what that meant for consumers and gasoline providers in the united states and developed nations when you think of a goldilocks scenario is not the same as we saw in early 2007 but the idea of the s&p and nasdaq and multi-year highs and gasoline prices coming down, central accommodation and what is taking place now number are very bullish on the heels of a rebalancing they referred to earlier and i will tell you into the close. liz: volatility and the close and we will give you all the information you need and thanks, great to see you. have a good weekend. the mission is to help you make money no matter what is happening in the world and peter barnes got a window into the federal reserve's thinking in an exclusive interview with eric rosenfrance. the move to implement quantitative easing is already starting to work in the housing market. >> rates are low in the boston market. prices going up. if you think the federal reserve program will last a fixed period, you want to catch it and interest rates low and prices going up. liz: precisely. why did we play the sound bite? my
competitors to step up the game in order for mcdonald's to start missing here in the united states. what will mcdonald's force to be done? and will that be good from an investor standpoint? how much will they have to give up maybe in terms of margins in order to get those customers back, for instance? >> you know, i think it's a combination of being more aggressive on the dollar menu. they will give a little bit on the margin side and we have near term caution on that particular point. but i also think they have a pretty nice product pipeline shaping up for 2013, which gives us excitement, and it's one of the reasons why mcdonald's is one of our favorite medium term names in the space. we do have some caution based on more difficult comparisons that show up in the fourth quarter as well as the threat of higher food costs that are going to pay out early next year. >> we should point out that with 104th on the price target. jim, we hear again from r.j. about food costs. actually the flip side of this is that we have a very weak labor market in the united states. so for as long as we're not
the area. the people in the area are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak. stuart: coming up, the top of the hour, ten o'clock, kt mcfarland on the policy disarray, can we say that the president's approach to islam is working, yes or no. top of the hour. lt. colonel oliver north will be here, says no, you cannot bring in the marines. two big companies and we're following them on the opening bell. general motors wants the government to sell its stake, but the reports suggest that the government wants to keep in control. apple could we see another all-time high? we're really, really close to 700 a share. we'll check it in just a couple of minutes. >> take a close look at your screen. and would you like this, a new graphic? graphics occupy less of the screen and i can appear more on the screen. i happen to adore the graphics. [laughter] >> the judge likes them too, and you can see more of him. television, what an awful beast it is. and the bell has running and trading slightly to the down side. we were expect ago modest loss at the opening bell, not much, maybe 20,
30 times before it runs out of room to ignite that economy. unlike europe and the united states, the policy makers in china have plenty of room to maneuver, and that fact seems to be endlessly forgotten by the bears who point this out daily. sure, many of their banks are bankrupt. i'm not saying that i don't trust -- hey, they built a ton of bridges and tunnels to nowhere, but never underestimate the problem-solving power of cash on the balance sheet. and china's got cash up the yazoo if not the yangtze for good measure. then there is the united states. here we have the fiscal cliff. the fiscal cliff is something we have moderate control over because it's a question of political will. it can be resolved. anything that can be resolved will be dealt with in some fashion. and i think that's why the stock market has been climbing despite the obvious chasm ahead of us. sure, there are other reasons that could cause the selloff stocks. stocks have had a big run. valuations getting stretched if we have little growth ahead of us. twice in the last month federal express, man, they disapp
that word, the auto industry of the united states at that time? >> it sounds like rhetoric. but -- and it is rhetoric, i guess, because it's words. but i think they're actually factual words. president bush and hank paulson agree because they were the first ones to provide capital to the auto industry. if the government had not stepped in, these companies would have had to literally shut their doors, they would have run out of cash, had to lay off their workers. the suppliers would have gone down. ford would have gone down. the industry would have shut down. whether it would have ultimately liquidated would depend on what would have happened after that. >> that is not the case. and in fact we got some very strong numbers earlier this week. are you surprised at the strength of auto sales at this point? >> no, i'm not surprised because you need to sell 15 million cars a year in this country simply to keep the fleet from aging. and we have not done that now for over four years. this is unprecedented in american history. so you have a huge amount of pent-up demand for cars beca
of the market. it is in the hands of the eflt cb not the hands of united states. >> we should point out tomorrow we will get some sort of plan or are expecting to from the ecb perhaps some details about a bond buying plan of some kind that we're hearing some things about today. the market may be disappointed in that these reports seem to indicate they'd be targeting three years and less in terms of maturity. that they would not have a yield target perhaps, say we're not going to let it go above 7%, and that it would be sterilized purchases. there are some who believe, hey, you need to actually increase the money supply. really if you're going to get things moving in europe but of course the germans are always concerned about inflation and sterilization which basically means they'll try and take in as much in deposits as they buy in bonds. sort of keeping -- >> somebody tweeted this morning fed bernanke needs to show them how you really print money. and, jim, one other facet of this report is that the head of the bach the german still remains the one lone hold out to this bond buying policy meani
aren't moving anywhere. it's on hope they can get it rationalized. united states is on fire and everyone keeps saying why can't we buy ford. because of latin america and europe. >> facebook, a bit backward looking, but the best day yesterday since that ipo. it's almost you can't say ipo without saying botched ipo. that's the way everybody says it. was there a turn yesterday? >> i think that you're going to have a well p like situation is what people hope. yelp was a giant lock up that expired and all the shorts were piled on. it went up seven. you have to bet that everyone is overly short facebook to get this thing going. i think it's more of the dynamics of the lock up in actual earnings. >> the big lock up is coming november and by november, we'll have more than a million shares hit the market. >> that's a big lock up to overcome. >> aig was remarkable. had 600 million shares hit, but aig of course was valued at half book. facebook, not valued at half book. >> taking a look at the financials, it is worth noting because xlf closed at five-month highs. taking a bit of a brea
in business and financial debt in the future. it will sink our economies, all of us, europe, united states, everybody. lori: harry dent, many thanks for your time and analysis. your forecasting is always great. melissa, chorus is growing louder of private debt bubbles. he makes a great point. melissa: he really does. when comes to gold competitiveness the u.s. is failing again. up next find out where we rank and why the drop and we'll get the take from lou dobbs on all of it. lori: i mentioned in the shot that european yields are coming down. here in the u.s. they're unchanged. we saw buying earlier on some weaker, if you will, economic news. the productivity was sky-high but of course wage growth was muted that is a huge disappointment. our bosses are squeezing everything they can out of us. back with more after this. lori: you're going to get in hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> i'm cher
's the best case scenario. >> does allow us to focus on the united states. >> exactly. >> we're probably doing better than any economy in the world. >> you're not trying to whistle past graveyards on that front, right? you're not trying to ignore europe. >> melissa mentioned the trading perspective. i think that the traders are saying, okay, now, what do we have here, and when we look at here, well, why don't we see with the steel industry, the auto industry. we focus -- the fill lebeau interview was incredibly important where allan mull ha ly says europe, we don't have it. the truth is united states has it. 14.5 million vehicles. that is a bull market in cars. >> right. >> we are talking about this upgrade today. sun trust, why is sun trust upgraded? i think that's very significant, not just because my trust owns it, but i'm looking at sun trust saying that is, again, the housing market in the south because the federal reserve didn't like sun trust. housing, autos, retail. what else do we need? >> right. >> well, we could use china to start growing a little bit faster instead of going the oth
been made of their failure to invest and promote the pepsi brand for soda within the united states. how relevant now is the home market for investors when, for example, coke is suggesting they will invest $30 billion over the next two or three years with the bot lers to double consumption around the world? >> it's a great question. so there's been a terrific change of heart at pepsi. this year about $600 million of advertising spending behind the businesses, the bulk of that is going to happen in north america. you probably just saw they sign add deal with the nfl. clearly they feel the pressure and want to start growing some of their businesses here at home again. >> and how does that compare to mao tau kent and the mass everybody bottlers worldwide. >> remember, coke bought their bottle in the u.s. so they have a lot more skin in the game. the good die naming here on the beverage side is guys are kind of getting along and playing nicely for the first time in a while. i think they want to make more money. they're cognizant of the economic. they're making the pack sizes smaller and lift
sheet. and china's got cash up the yazoo if not the yangtze is for good mesh. then the united states. here we have the fiscal cliff. the fiscal cliff is something we have moderate control over because it's a question of political will. kit be resolved. anything that can be resolved will be dealt with in some fashion. and i think that's why the stock market has been climbing despite the obvious chasm ahead of us. sure, there are other reasons that could cause the sell of stocks. valuations getting stretched if we have little growth ahead of us. twice in the last month federal express, man, they disappointed. twice, twice. it's been a real tale of woe. [ crying ] and what has happened? frankly, nothing. stock's pretty much unchanged. tonight we got a big disappointment from norfolk southern, the railroad. while the stock is being hit after hours, you know what? i bet you buyers come in and snap it up tomorrow at what will be considered real bargain prices a few weeks from now. that's because in this tape, in this market, disappointing earnings don't necessarily produce disappointing an
with the european debt crisis, and even within the united states, with it being an election year. >> reporter: but burberry says it has been talking to other luxury goods makers, so it knows it's not alone in seeing the slowdown. as a result, luxury good stocks like lvmh, tiffany, and coach also fell today, although they didn't get hit nearly as hard as burberry. it's not just luxury firms getting hurt by the global slowdown. many other bellwether firms have said revenues are suffering due to weaker sales in china, europe and elsewhere. in the s&p 500, there have been 88 negative pre-announcements for the third quarter so far, and only 20 positive ones. >> the number of negative pre- announcements we've received is the worst in over a decade. we've already seen analysts become very bearish on these companies. >> reporter: last week, chipmaker intel drastically reduced its sales forecast, warning consumers and businesses are buying fewer personal computers. the company also withdrew its full-year guidance, which is seen as a sign of extreme uncertainty. and fedex recently cut its earnings fore
tarp was one of the worst economic decisions in the history of the united states. >> okay. so like i said, he does not hold back on anything he's thinking about. he will be our guest host for two hours today, and that begins at 7:00 eastern. we are also going to be talking finance with the ceo of cowen and company, jeffrey solomon, and bill isaac. plus the state of innovation, steve case will be joining us live at 7:30 eastern time. so we have a big show ahead. before we get to all of that, let's get you up to speed on the morning's headlines. andrew, good morning. >> thanks, becky. good morning to you. we will get you caught up on some of the big headlines. germany's highest court ruling that the country can ratify the new permanent european bailout fund, but there are conditions to germany's participation. here's the important part. parliament will have veto power over any future increases. we'll have more on that story in just a few moments. back here in the u.s., the fed is beginning to begin convening a two-day policy setting meeting in washington. market expectations high. many
manufacturing contracting here in the united states. yesterday, we learned it's contracting in the china for the first time since november and in europe, it continues to contract. and yet, you think that the market is well supported here, why? >> i think it's going to be a range bound market. i think right now, we're in the tougher end of the range. there are two things that are supporting the market. one, there is an economic value to entities and so the lbo or acquisition value is providing support. to the extent companies return cash to shareholders, that offers some support. >> do you see many acquisitions in the market at the moment? >> no, and that's one of the things that's been surprising and disappointing at the same time. it's interesting. there are areas of the market where you've seen capital flow to economic opportunity. for example, buying single family homes to rent them out. which is an arbitrage that was made available by the decline housing prices you haven't seen a comparable level of activity on the corporate side, which is surprising. there are a couple of opportunit
in lebanon or destroi a cool in tune this -- he does not think that the united states can live with the nuclear armed iran. carl, one point to think about as we think about the president's remarks here, he's been under fire f, and the obam camp is making an important issue, obama is clearly walking a tightrope today and doesn't want to threat up his re-election chances. a very dell rat moment politically. >> not to mention anyone trying to drive in midtown manhattan. let's goat to headquarters with the market flash. >>> shares of carnival are higher 3.5%. what we heard from them, better than that, at the same time, you'll see this tempered stock and this stock is trading higher. >>> still ahead, marissa meyer announces her grand plan. >>> and "squawk on the street" will be live with both organizations. we don't call this our company, we call this our mission. green toys teaches children that if i have a milk jug and i stick it in the recycling bin it can turn into something new. chase allows us to buy capital equipment to be able to manufacture in the states to the scale we nee
of years here in the united states, no matter who's in charge. others think we're headed well down from here. how do you see it? how are you kind of playing this out? >> i really see that the u.s. has one of the most dynamic economies. a lot of entrepreneurs that can always figure out where else to take their companies. and i think this is -- we have seen that in shell gas, where shell gas went from nowhere to 50, 60, now 80 billion cubic meters of annual production. it's unbelievable. and i think this is something that, you know, we do believe in the u.s. economy in the fact that, you know, u.s. cooperations will always come up with new ways of satisfying that demand. >> andrei, thank you. >> thank you. >>> coming up, the jobs report could become a political football on the campaign trail. new england patriot president jonathan kraft will join us with a unique indicator. first, what happens when you send a conservative free market economist to the dnc with a microphone? peter shift found out and he'll join us live at 6:50 a.m. here's a little preview of that. >> how about a cap on prof
a month or so and you see iron ore stocks, you see machinery stocks in the united states and other parts of the world rally off the back of this notion of china stimulus, are all those things built on false expectations? >> we need to look at those charts. and most of those charts have fallen very sharply in the last two months. so what we experience through our trading book on friday with short coverings, we didn't see long-only investors coming in and buying stocks this morning. what i do think is different and you've highlighted that asia has recovered -- talking about a recovery -- the local investors do seem to be more excited by this new story than we've seen for some period of time. particularly noting that cement stocks rallied quite hard today in shanghai. so that is interesting that the local investors are somewhat more enthused about this story than we've seen for months. >> okay. adrian, thank you so much for phoning in. we appreciate it. adrian mowat of jpmorgan. >>> it's interesting this morning that stocks are essentially hanging on to the sharp gains that they made last w
